THE STORY:

Hire Our Heroes wrote -

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! 

Hire Our Heroes flys transitioning Veterans for FREE to Job Interviews across the country!  This year alone we have flown over 50+ veterans at an average ticket price of $800 and we need your support to continue our mission in doing what it takes to get our veteranas employed! 

HOH will provide a free round trip airline ticket to any transitioning veteran interviewing to secure a job without the means to travel to and from the interview. The idea here is to support small to medium size businesses by allowing them to tap into an untapped market of talent that they might not typically have access to, due to budget constraints. In addition, this allows transitioning veterans the opportunity to interview and secure opportunities prior to making the final transition back into the civilian world.

How We Are Different

We are a non-profit organization for veterans operated and founded by veterans. Our goal is to capture each transitioning veteran ideally within one year prior to their discharge to Train, Mentor and Coach them in job placement. The motivation behind this effort is to create a National approach to reduce Veteran unemployment that will allow employers an overall talent acquisition and retention strategy by making veterans a part of their workforce. We offer industry best practices and theory to meet current and future hiring and retention needs through the employment of Veterans. Hire Our Heroes stands ready to assist veterans looking for a new career or employers who are eager to hire skilled professionals!

HIRE OUR HEROES

THE MISSION OF HIRE OUR HEROES (HOH) IS TO EMPOWER VETERANS AND EMPLOYERS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND INNOVATIVE TOOLS NECESSARY TO OPTIMIZE A STRATEGIC WORKFORCE.

The Problem

Employment is probably the top priority after health during the transition from the battlefield to the home-front for veterans. There are over 1 Million current unemployed veterans and another 1 Million separating from the armed forces over the next 5 years, and we need to support them just as they have supported us and our country’s freedom. These transitioning veterans have been left without employment and have little guidance during the transition from active duty.

Please help support us as we embark on this herculean effort giving back to those who have served for the freedom we enjoy today.

The Solution

As these veterans change out of their uniform, we need to be ready, willing and able to welcome them back into the civilian workforce. We are committed to providing them with the tools necessary to secure employment. Our team of veterans is ready to Train, Mentor and Coach these transitioning veterans into the civilian workforce. We will accomplish this by offering one-on-one monthly coaching and mentoring sessions by enlisting veterans and volunteers out of Corporate America, networking events, and group training across North America.

Traction & Accomplishments

Hire Our Heroes makes impact daily, assisting veterans with resume writing, social media training, and connecting with employers looking to hire veterans. We continue to assist those veterans with gaining full-time employment.
